Sneaky Peek at WIP. WW1 Camel Ambulance 1.

Finally I have been able to start some work on a project that has been on the cards for quite some time. While I wait for the delivery of some more brass rod (note to self- check supplies before embarking on new project) here are a couple of images of the first converted camel. Additions made with plasticard, brass rod, grey stuff, superglue and swearing. More in due course as this progresses alongside the current project of a number of WW1 Mutton Chop Germans.

Mutton Chop WW1 Tommies Revisited.

A group of twelve Tommies from Mutton Chop. Using my own green-khaki paint scheme to fit in with other figures in the same collection.

1st Corps Holt Artillery Tractor, a scratchbuilt towing limber and an 8 inch howitzer from HLBSCo.

I just had to complete the ensemble. The tractor from the previous post, a scratchbuilt cereal packet towing limber and a big gun that had been in a box for a while. In the words of Chris Tarrant from his "TISWAS" days, "This is what we want!"

1st Corps Holt Artillery Tractor

Have taken some time out of the painting schedule to paint up the new Holt Artillery Tractor from 1st Corps. I shortened the uprights that support the canopy as the original model looked too tall for my liking. A bit of modelling putty on the edge of the canopy created the impression of the rolled up canvas sides of the vehicle. The kit also comes with two figures for crew if you fancy it. Here a couple of "brass hats" from Division get a closer look after this leviathan has hauled 8 inch howitzers into positions outside Gaza.
